James M. Mayer - Interview with James M. Mayer: clip: Details on his physical and emotional healing; before he was hurt, said he would kill himself if he ever got maimed; now happy to be alive; told a nurse he was going to throw an Alive Day party every year on April 25, the day he was injured; if someone in the amputee ward was whining he would find a baby bottle on his nightstand; he passed it on to the next guy who started whining; the camaraderie made the sacrifice worth it, no matter whether the cause was just.
